Lyrics

The cracks you used to know
Spiderwebbing through my heart my hands
They're pushing me apart like slivered flats of land
Ever since the day you replaced me

The breasts of a blossoming beauty
Wrapped in torn scraps a once-elegant dress
Structures decaying soundly
Magnified meaningless markings of majesty

A Hunter to his prey
Fleeting footsteps flowing
One under the weight
Of two hearts heavy falt'ring

I'm a broken machine
Made with overwound springs
Watch me slowly fall apart
Slowly fall apart
I'm all on my own
With nowhere to call home
Watch me slowly fall apart
Slowly fall apart

I move
Grinding gears inside my body but
I smile
The effort almost breaks me every time

I'm drowning
Every Time my head dips I can't help but wonder if it's the last time
I'm floating
Life's my surface flailing for a single gasp I can't (see her)
Again
Alone we're suffering
In this crater we call home
I've lost the will to take (A hunter to his prey)
A life so beautiful

I'm a broken machine
Made with overwound springs
Watch me slowly fall apart
Slowly fall apart
I'm all on my own
With nowhere to call home
Watch me slowly fall apart
Slowly fall apart

You knew exactly how this ends
You're running just like all your friends
I'm hunting after you again
Please stop me please stop me

My hands make empty homes their ends
I'm stealing from those I call friends
I'm broken worthless let it end
I'm drowning please stop me

(You've never been alive
You've always been a lie
No one could break in
Your walls are flawless
You told yourself a lie
It poisoned all your mind
You never waited
You knew the ending
You weren't weak at all
Where others would all fall
You stand triumphant
And you can stop this
The choice is yours to make
To give or will you take
But I will trust you
I still trust you)

I'm a broken machine
Made with overwound springs
Watch me slowly fall apart
Slowly fall apart
I'm all on my own
With nowhere to call home
Watch me slowly fall apart
Slowly fall apart

You knew exactly how this ends
You're running just like all your friends
I'm hunting after you again
Please stop me
Please stop me
